Old Fashioned Custard Pie

May 30, 2012

It is so true that the basics will travel through the years, transcend and suffice the yearnings of the memories of life.  And this is the pie that does all of those things for me.  I don’t see this pie often (other than in my home) but it was common years ago for a ‘celebration’ or everyday.
